I've got mine at the beginning of the asphalt season... It's very pleasant to drive, more consistent reactions at low speed and at high speed...

This is not a revolution, but I prefer the car with than without... Allows me to find more grip when it's low and keep a good corner speed...

Default lipo charger

Hey guys,

slightly off topic, im looking to get a new lipo charger and was wondering what you felt was best? Many of the chargers cut out at 8.4volts but alot of people are increasing the cutoff to 8.44 (brca limit). I would like to get a charger that allows this but not sure what to get, i race competitively so would be looking to get the best out there?

any ideas?

I feel the Exotek chassis is advantageous on lower grip, or more unpredictable conditions like parking lot racing. It tends to make that setup window a little bigger, so your car isn't so sensitive to setup changes. On higher grip conditions, I still feel the stock chassis is more responsive, and can have an edge over the Exotek chassis if the car is setup correctly.

The Exotek chassis is also narrower, which will allow the car to roll more without it scraping or bottoming out so hard. Tends to make the car a little more predictable in on some bumpy tracks

rear body tuck

a small tuck can take you off the podium at a big race

i'm guessing the length of the posts is dependent on the trunk on the body?

Usually most bodies seem to be relatively close. I've used the corally threaded body posts in the past with their twist adjusters. Then you can take up the slack between different bodies. But really, they are there to prevent the back of the car getting shoved up inside the body from an unfortunate event. The don't have to be perfect .

I've just been told soon. I was given one to try, and I really like it. It will replace my mazdaspeed 6 as the baseline for when I go racing. It has more steering than a speed 6 with a better overall balance than the ltc-r. The ltc-r makes the back end of the car feel "floaty" to me. The Type-C has excellent balance! Plus... hood scoops are rad .
